A few minutes after HTC’s announcement, Microsoft Mobile took the centre stage at the Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (IFA) to announce its mid range offering that promises high end features. The Nokia Lumia 830 has been priced at 330 Euros and when it arrives in India at the end of this month we can expect its price to hover around 26,250 rupees. In the article we shall discuss the features of the Nokia Lumia 830 and see if it really offers flagship features at affordable rates. Since the Nokia Lumia range is well-known for their cameras, Microsoft Mobile keeps up that tradition by giving the Nokia Lumia 830 a rear 10MP PureView camera with ZEISS optics along with the company’s thinnest and lightest Optical Image Stabilization system. Full HD video recording is enhanced by three high performance microphones that let you record 5.1 channel audio with the phone’s Nokia Rich Recording feature. The multiple audio capture system was seen first on the Nokia Lumia 1520 which costs nearly Rs. 40000. On the front we find a 0.9MP wide angle secondary camera.

The Nokia Lumia 830 is quite a handful with its 5-inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution display that incorporates Nokia’s proprietary ClearBlack display technology and supersensitive touch. Protected by Gorilla Glass 3 the display supports Nokia Glance Screen, sunlight readability enhancements and double tap to wake features. Underneath the hood we get a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB RAM entrusted with the task of running Windows Phone 8.1 with Lumia Denim upgrade. It has a larger 16GB internal memory and gives you the option of upgrading that storage to up to 128 GB with help of microSD cards. As usual Microsoft throws in 15GB of cloud storage for free.

The Nokia Lumia 830 works on LTE networks and supports Qi standard wireless charging. Connectivity features include NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB and Wi-Fi with screen mirroring. Fitness enthusiasts will be glad to find the SensorCore which is a low-power motion sensing technology that tracks your location and physical activities. The Nokia Lumia 830 is powered by a 2200mAh user removable battery and will be available in bright orange, bright green, white and black colour variants.

So has Microsoft Mobile delivered on its promise? We leave you to discuss that in the comment section below after you have skimmed through the source links and the official hands-on video below.
